When looking at the navigation menu in the iOS app, it would be nice to see your rep total on the right side as it's shown in the topbar's Site Selector:

Menu Tray

  • There doesn't seem to be much room there (even less on my android). Are you suggesting a wider menu, smaller font, truncated site names, etc? – Geobits Feb 19 '14 at 17:22
  • @Geobits I'd leave that to SE's stellar Mobile team to figure out. It most likely would mean any or all of the items you listed. This current menu was designed for the content shown. Adding in new content changes the design and the design requirements. I'm not suggesting how it should be done, just that I'd like to see it done in some way. – Hynes Feb 19 '14 at 17:31
  • a fourth option could be a second row of data, with rep/badges under the site name. otherwise while i like the suggestion i agree there just isn't enough room – mhlester Feb 19 '14 at 17:33
  • @mhlester If the current designed was completely maintained -- yes there isn't enough room. But adding a feature means you're making room for it not just shoehorning it in. Keeping it on the same line would maintain how SE handles display community name + rep in the Site Switcher and Profile pages too. When I see a list of Community names, I kind of expect to see my rep on the right too. – Hynes Feb 19 '14 at 17:36

    don't get me wrong, i support this feature request (+1)! i'm just fleshing out the options – mhlester Feb 19 '14 at 17:37

The next build will feature your reputation on the side. I tried subtitles but given how short the reputation is, this felt more natural.

So far all I've done is increased the menu width by 10pt while typically consuming 23pt, so some names that wasn't ellipsized before probably now are.

Reputation on the side

  • Out of curiosity, if I wanted to ask the same thing for the Android app, should I open another question? It seems silly to do so, but I don't know who in the mobile team sees/does/answers what. – Geobits Feb 19 '14 at 20:53
  • @Geobits I'd say open a new question so they Android guys can track it. If it's not on a list somewhere so we can assign it, we just fix things by chance. – Brian Nickel Feb 19 '14 at 20:58
  • Very nice! Any thought of badge circles too, or just too cramped? – mhlester Feb 19 '14 at 20:59
  • Badges would help fill out a second line but it could get noisy at that point. Not sure. – Brian Nickel Feb 19 '14 at 21:01
  • Very cool @BrianNickel! Can't wait! – Hynes Feb 19 '14 at 21:01
  • Why not status-completed then? :) – Shadow Wizard is Vaccinating Feb 19 '14 at 23:04
  • Because I'm forgetful. – Brian Nickel Feb 19 '14 at 23:06
